In ArcMap, fixing a broken data link for a coverage layer can cause geodatabase annotation layers in the same map to lose information about their source. For a given map document, if you repair any coverage layer before repairing all annotation layers, then the annotation layers will lose their feature dataset name (Layer Properties dialog box > Source tab).
Repairing the data source of any coverage layers before first repairing all geodatabase annotation layers causes this problem.
When repairing a map document with broken data links, you must:
a) repair all annotation layers before repairing any coverage layer.
b) repair each annotation layer individually using the following method. Do not use any other layer repair method to repair annotation layers.
